Next Js Template results in empty repository

Hello Everyone,

I was hoping to try the Netlify CMS using the provided Next js template located here

I followed the steps to connect github, name the site, and deploy. After clicking “save & deploy”, I’m left with an empty github repository resulting in a failed deploy.

I’m very confused how this is supposed to work. Am I missing something. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
